It’s an Art Attack!

The group project presentations on Tuesday were, put simply, great. 11 groups showed off their projects, and none were even remotely similar. There were spoof movie trailers, fake talkback radio bits, behaviour change experiments and science-themed cakes, to mention a few.

One of the groups pulled off an ambitious Art Attack on the Queen’s Lawn at Imperial. Sit back, chill out and enjoy their little video…

A little bit of background: they invited donations of lab materials and the like from a wide range of university departments who were involved in or related to the science of DNA and the developments that helped us understand it. They assembled them into, as you now can see, huge strands of DNA in the Art Attack! Effective and clever.

    pretty cool idea; I was keen to see if the rotation of the helix was right-handed, but can’t really make it out… This DNA is wound too tight – I counted 7 base pairs per turn whereas the natural B form DNA has 10, A form has 11 and Z form has 12.

  2. this project is fabulous!

  3. pretty neat! Thanks for sharing. :)

  4. David thanks for posting this – it’s great to see feedback when you invested so much into it! Got some incredibly feedback from your stop motion animation masterpiece.. I sent the link to my Dad and got the response “Well, why isn’t your as good as that?” Haha!
